Beijing, SANA- China stressed that what the US is doing incites confrontation between blocs, increases tensions on the Korean Peninsula and endangers regional peace and stability, which China strongly opposes.
“The US puts its geopolitical interests ahead of the security of the entire region, and is a source of tension by exploiting the issues of the Korean Peninsula.”, Xinhua quoted Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning as saying during a press conference on Wednesday, commenting on the “Washington Declaration” issued by the US and South Korea last Wednesday.
“The US behavior results from the Cold War mentality, has increased tensions on the peninsula, and has undermined regional peace and stability,” Mao said.
Mao noted that this behavior opposes commitment to the goal of denuclearization of the peninsula.
